Guangzhou were mediocre in the group stage, and they barely made into the knock-out stage after beating Daegu. Besides, their offense is inflicted by injuries with the likes of Talisca, Gao Lin and Yu Hanchao.
On the other hand, Shandong are the only CSL team that made into the knock-out stage as group leaders this season with a great overall performance. Besides, they rotated their lineup in their last league game.
The AH line is only -0.25 for the hosts, which is not so in favor of Guangzhou.
Therefore they are likely to share the spoils in this game.
